    My husband has a recurring knot on his head?
    mary2010elisabeth posted:
    My husband has this knot on the right bottom side of his head near his ear that randomly comes up once every month or so, it starts out like an itchy spot that turns into a rather large lump that goes away after a few hours, he says that it's tender to the touch but not really that painful.
